The Averted Gaze in Hemingway's Fiction - Scott Donaldson

This quote was added by ikasu
This absence of a "determining (and degrading) male gaze" may seem odd to those who regard Hemingway as a macho writer and expect him to diminish his female characters into creatures who exist solely for the use and entertainment of their male companions. But that view derives from Hemingway's public persona, not from his writing. And it may seem odd, as well, because in technique Hemingway's stories closely resemble dramas in which scopophilia abounds.
